PHARR – Nocturnal animals have many interesting adaptations that give them huge advantages to survive in their dark world. The South Texas Border Chapter Texas Master Naturalist September 23 meeting presentation is on “Creatures that Come out at Night.” The talk will feature native spiders, bats, moths and birds and how you can see them for yourself. The presentation will be led by City of McAllen Parks and Recreation Program Coordinator and Texas Master Naturalist Jessica Tanguma, and Joseph Connors, local photographer and Texas Master Naturalist. Tanguma develops programming for the McAllen Nature Center and Town Lake at Firemen's Park. She has been with the City of McAllen for three years and led various tours that include night hikes through the nature center. She also is a Texas Master Naturalist and a Texas State Park Ambassador and Trainer who enjoys sharing her enthusiasm for the outdoors with others. Connors is a native of the Rio Grande Valley who enjoys observing and sharing the incredible diversity of arachnids and insects of South Texas through his macro photography. He is a Texas Master Naturalist, a frequent contributor to citizen science on iNaturalist, and can often be found pointing out spiders on night hikes. The presentation begins at 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to meet with chapter members at the 6 p.m. social and attend the general meeting after the presentation. There is no charge or fee for this event. The meeting is at St. George Orthodox Church Hall, 704 W. Sam Houston, in Pharr. For more information visit http://www.stbctmn.org/.
